System Architecture#

uml diagram

The scenario_simulator_v2 consists of the three components: test runner, openscenario_interpreter, and simulator.

Each component has the following features:

  1. test_runner
    The test_runner launches Autoware and other components in this tool.
    The test_runner communicates with "openscenario_interpreter" with the ROS 2 lifecycle. (

  2. openscenario_interpreter
    The test runner communicates with the openscenario_interpreter with the rclcpp lifecycle.
    The openscenario_interpreter is a rclcpp lifecycle component.
    lifecycle When the openscenario_interpreter launched, the state of the openscenario_interpreter is "Unconfigured".
    When the test runner launched, the test runner configures the openscenario_interpreter and the state of the openscenario_interpreter becomes "Inactive".
    After that, the test runner activates the openscenario_interpreter and moves the state into "Active". When the exception is thrown in the openscenario interpreter, the openscenario interpreter moves into "Inactive" state.

  3. simulator
    The simulator component communicates with the openscenario_interpreter by using ZeroMQ. You can use any simulators by adapting the ZeroMQ API. The simple sensor simulator is a reference implementation of the simulator component.
